Island Style Essentials #6 & #7
“A casual island house can never have too many stripes,” says Meg. “They just bring a sense of order to every space.” In the kitchen, she balanced the intricate mosaic tile with a simple striped rug in the same color palette. Her favorite sources for affordable but chic striped rugs are Dash & Albert and Calypso St. Barth.
Meg opted for symmetrical furniture arrangements throughout the house, but most notably in the guest bedrooms, which she outfitted with matching twin beds, tables, lamps, and occasional pieces at the foot of the beds. The doubling effect gives the guest rooms flexibility for accommodating singles or couples.
